|The leg after the initial attempt at filling the split.|
Living in coastal North Carolina and not having air conditioning in my shop (my garage) meant taking a break from woodworking until the temperature and humidity in the garage dropped to sub-tropical levels. The only thing to do was head to the Outer Banks and enjoy kayak fishing near Cape Hatteras.
Now that temperatures are starting to drop I'm able to get in and finish up the table. Fixing the split leg was the obvious first step to completing the project. After that comes a light sanding and a magic application of boiled linseed oil.
For my previous patch I added black walnut sawdust from my tablesaw to the epoxy to help color the filler and add some texture. I wasn't happy with the coarseness of the sawdust and decided to try something else for the second attempt.

dust makes for a nice looking filler.
